We started carrying the digital HL1606-type LED strips and have already written some nice libraries for them! Our first library is basic on/off control, its fast and easy to use, just setLEDcolor() to change each LED as you like.
Our second library is for those who want more color control, we has a full high-speed hardware PWM control system with 9 (512 color) or 12-bit (4096) RGB color (depending on how long the strip is). You can now animate strands of over a hundred of LEDs using only 3 digital SPI pins.
There are example sketches with each one.
Get your blink on and pick up a meter – we also suggest a 2A power supply if you want to control a lot of LEDs as the current requirements do add up fast!
We also took a new photo, it’s lovely!
